Ok final version of gui_keypad is attached.

changes:
- added cursor (you can change cursor and add/remove characters at middle of text)
- erase/display key will work like backspace
- integrated with CHDK

Usage:

Call function gui_keypad_init(char *text_buff, int text_length, int text_max_length)
//text_buff - pointer to text
//text_length - length of current text (0 to make clean entry)
//text_max_length - size of text buffer - 1
This fuction will change gui mode to GUI_MODE_KEYPAD, after user typed text, keypad will change gui mode to previous mode and then you can access typed text by text pointer passed to function.


I think this should be added to trunk after first module using keypad, for now this can wait on forum for future :)

Some suggestions after quick test:

- thin green cursor is fully invisible on low-resolution displays (like 115 kpixels in a710)
- colors are terrible (IMO)
- impossible to "deselect" green key (if it selected by mistake)
- how about to use other camera  keys (for example, "shutter_half" as "Shift", or use zoom rocker for cursor moving)?
- how about alternative keyboard layouts (Cyrillic, Greek etc)?

Is this going to the trunk at all? Seems to have stalled.
